Two Fountains in The Grand Parade!

On the 4th of October 2006 there was another fountain on the Grand Parade which was not affected by roadworks! Chocolate flowed from this fountain of youth, located in the foyer of Cork City Library, to celebrate the launch by Adi Roche of the library’s city wide programme of events for the national Children’s Book Festival while the young and young at heart, not only dipped into the chocolate fountain but also got a taste of what is taking place during the month of October in libraries around the city.
